A man by the name of Richard Loveless isn’t “loveless” anymore after scooping $42 million with the New York Lottery. Richard and his wife are very humble people and they did not see their win coming along, saying that they are usually very unlucky people. Read their amazing full story here.
Richard was going through his usual Sunday routine on the 18th of October when he heard that a winning $42.5 million lottery ticket was sold the day before at the Pit Stop convenience store. Richard’s stomach dropped because it was the same business where he always buys his lottery tickets.
He is a retired electrician from Port Byron and never thought he'd live to see the day he won a big lottery prize, let alone $42 million.
Richard’s winning New York Lottery numbers were:
He said he was absolutely stunned when he saw his ticket matched all the correct numbers. Richard is 64-years-old and went back to the store where they had announced that a $42 million ticket had been sold. He can remember the moment he realized that his life was going to change forever.
“I scared the crap out of my wife,” he explained, “I ran into the bedroom and said, ‘Sandy, Sandy.’ My wife thought something was wrong with our dog. ‘What?’ she asked worriedly. Then I said, ‘I hit the lottery.’”
Sandy, as you could imagine, was very surprised but didn’t register just how much they had won. Richard had to repeat the life0changin sum over and over for it to sink in properly. “That’s when she started screaming,” said Richard.
For his lotto ticket, Richard used a mix of numbers that are special to him – anniversaries and birthdays. The winning numbers were his parent’s birthdays!
His father was born on the 16th of November 1919 – 11-16-19 – and his mother on the 9th of January 1922 – 1-9-22. How incredible is that?!
Richard even said himself, “Talk about divine intervention!” Richard chose the lump sum option, which means he will walk away with $19.5 million after taxes. He plans to pay off his mortgage, his daughter’s student loans and wants to work on his garage. He doesn’t know what he is going to do with the rest of the money, but he said one thing is for sure: “My wealth won’t change who I am. I want to stay the way I am. I’m a blue-collar worker and I want to die that way.”
What an inspiration he is to us all!
